Whether you’re celebrating Mother’s Day, treating your friends to a boozy brunch or just want a gin-soaked treat after a long day, it’s time to add marmalade to your mixology.

The Bonne Maman marmalade in March's Gin of the Month box – there is one of three fabulous flavours - is a truly delectable proposition.  So even if you are not a traditional marmalade eater we think you are going to love tasting these and maybe become a new marmalade fan!  

Made to simple, traditional recipes with the best ripe oranges, this marmalade is softer than its British counterpart; and, with three flavours ranging from Bitter Orange to Tangy Mandarin and then new Sweet Orange, there’s a pot for every palate.

So how should you use this sunny orange spread?  At breakfast first of all, of course – hot buttered toast, crusty bread and croissants are all much improved with a dollop, as are crumpets, muffins, bagels and Hot Cross Buns.

As with all Bonne Maman conserves, the high fruit content and all natural ingredients means they also work brilliantly in brunch bakes like Pain Perdu, marmalade muffins, tea breads or drizzle cakes. And, of course, the brunch-friendly cocktails here!
